New attraction inspired by the book ‘Room on the Broom’ opens at Chessington

Daily Star were lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the new ‘Room on the Broom’ attraction at Chessington World of Adventures Resort.

The family attraction is based on a Julia Donaldson book following on from the success of The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure.

The excitement begins as soon as the doors to the enchanted library are opened, to reveal a spooky cauldron where the scene is set for the adventure we were about to experience.

Guests are then invited to walkthrough the pages of the book on a magical adventure bringing the story to life using smells, animatronics, effects and many interactive scenes.

Along the way we were delighted to meet the much-loved characters from the book and join them in various activities to help them find the witches lost belongings.

Children must jump up and down to retrieve the hat, search high and low for the bow in haystacks and catch fireflies to find the wand. Watch out for the dragon as he fancies ‘Witch and chips’ for tea!

Julia Donaldson took her grandchildren along to experience the attraction.

She said “It is very true to the book – most of the words from the book are in there – and as the author, that’s really nice from my point of view.

My favourite was the first room where things came out of the screen, and I liked the mirror maze – that was very clever.

I liked the activities and the way you have to jump up and down to help the witch find her bow, I think the children will like that”

If you’re a fan of Julia’s books then you’re bound to love this new attraction.
